My chkn stock congealed. If I need 4 cups do I measure it the same as if it were a liquid?

ps Actually actually actually actually- there, I think that's enough

I don't actually eat chicken, but generally with a stock it requires considerable reduction to get it to where it will actually congeal, so it may be stronger than desired if you use the same measure.

Agree with Smaug.
Warm up the gelled stock, then add water until the color is in the range you usually get when you make broth.
Now use this liquid according to your recipe needs.

Hi Amber! Sounds like it's just a gelatinous stock (a great thing!). If you need to measure 4 cups for a recipe, I would gently rewarm the stock, so it re-liquifies, then measure from there.
